Thinking of steering away from 3d for a moment, at the same time expressing our creativity in different styles of animation and showing what we would also love to work on , we have stumbled upon a new idea during a morning coffee.
With every next sip and smile the story and characters evolved and we found ourselves laughing more and more imagining loony animals puking each other out wanting to become vegetarians. From the first concepts of our silly new animal friends and all the way to everything else: coloring , animation , music and sounds , we were constantly tweaking story and characters back and forth to make good idea even better.
So, with coffee stains all over our desks from bursts of laughter and 4 week behind us, we proudly present you “Be a vegetarian”. We have enjoyed working on this piece and we hope you will enjoy watching it.

From a culture of sharing we have become a culture driven by possession and profit. The century of self. This short film comes from the kitchens of the golden temple where every day around 100,000 people, regardless of colour, caste or religion, donate, prepare, consume and clean for nothing more than compassion. Are we really moving in the right direction?
This year the world will produce enough food to feed twice the world's population, yet every day almost one billion people will sleep hungry.
There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.
Thank you for your compliments. We have not been able to respond to comments for some reason (still trying to figure it out....) but here is some general info.
We shot this with a Canon 5D and 7D with EF 50mm f1.4 USM and EF 24-105mm f4L IS. We edited in Final Cut Pro and colored in Color and FCP. We wrote out the titles and edited them in Photoshop.
Based on Michael Pollan's talk "Food Rules" given at the RSA, this animation was created in the context of the RSA/Nominet Trust film competition. Using a mixture of stop-motion and compositing, our aim and challenge was to convey the topic in a visually interesting way using a variety of different food products. We made a little table top set up at home and worked on this a little over three weeks.
Here are also some photos of Michael Pollan's Food Rules in the making
